Rebunto Island, Rebun-cho

(4.7/5 based on 150 reviews on the web)
Visit hilltop fortifications of ancient Ainu people and observe Japanese Edelweiss at Rebunto Island. Stretching 29 km (18 mi) from north to south and 8 km (5 mi) from east to west, the island provides trekking routes through nature, as the island is part of a larger national park. You can find trail maps in English at the ferry area. Over 300 varieties of rare alpine flowers can be spotted on an 8-hour hike across the island and shorter well-marked scenic trails. While here, taste sea urchins, a specialty of the area. Due to the infrequency of buses, you may consider renting a car.
